Brenda’s Buzz Friday August 11: Taylor Swift Gets Snarky on the Witness Stand / Movies That Couldn’t Happen in 2017 / Bill O’Reilly Will Make His First Appearance on CNN

TAYLOR SWIFT took the witness stand yesterday to tell a jury how a former DJ groped her backside during a meet-and-greet.

David Mueller denies it, and he’s suing Taylor because he got FIRED after she told his bosses. Taylor is counter-suing for sexual harassment.

(Careful!) She said, quote, “He had a handful of my ass . . . he grabbed my bare ass under my skirt . . . He stayed attached to my bare asscheek as I lurched away from him. It was a definite grab. A very long grab.”

She also denied responsibility for Mueller getting fired . . . quote, “I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions, not mine . . .

“I don’t feel anything about Mr. Mueller . . . I think what he did was despicable and horrifying and shocking.”

Mueller is suing Taylor for up to $3 million, although he claims what he wants most is to clear his name and salvage his career. Taylor wants nothing more than a symbolic ONE-DOLLAR judgment that holds him responsible.

Movies That Couldn’t Happen in 2017

Time marches on and movies become dated. Sometimes straight-up OUT-dated. Buzzfeed put out a list of 17 Movies That Couldn’t Happen in 2017.

It’s a little repetitive, because they just took 17 old movies and showed how their plots would be ruined by cell phones and the Internet. But there are a few interesting entries. Check ’em out . . .

1. “Sixteen Candles” (1984): Thanks to Facebook notifications, nobody would have forgotten Samantha’s birthday.

2. “Pretty Woman” (1990): Edward never would have gotten lost, because he could have looked up directions on his phone. And thus, he would have never met Vivian.

3. “Home Alone” (1990): Kevin could have just texted or called his parents. The end.

4. “My Cousin Vinny” (1992): The two kids wouldn’t have been wrongly accused, because every convenience store has security cameras now.

5. “Forrest Gump” (1994): If Forrest just looked up directions on his phone, he would have known he was right near Jenny’s house. Thus, he wouldn’t have been sitting on that bench telling everyone his story.

6. “Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993): Miranda would have Googled Mrs. Doubtfire before trusting her to watch her kids . . . and would have found out she DIDN’T EXIST.

7. “Psycho” (1960): Marion Crane probably would have booked a hotel online. If not, she could have looked up the Bates Motel, and found that it had NO REVIEWS.

8. “Sleepless in Seattle” (1993): Jonah wouldn’t have called into a radio show to find a woman for his dad . . . he would have made him an online dating profile.

 

Bill O’Reilly Will Make His First Appearance on CNN

Up until a few months ago, this would have been unthinkable . . . but BILL O’RIELLY is about to make his first appearance on CNN. There’s no word yet on a date, but it’s supposed to happen next month.

Bill had CNN’s Michael Smerconish on his online show on Wednesday . . . and as they were wrapping up, Bill said he’d do Smerconish’s show, which airs on Saturday mornings.

O’Reilly was canned by Fox News in April, after 21 years . . . because of a news report that he and Fox had paid millions of dollars in settlements to women who accused him of sexual harassment.
